Written Student Learning Plans

A Written Student Learning Plan (WSLP) is required for all students attending Emerson K-12.  The WSLP provides accountability for student learning at school and at home.  This includes weekly contact with certificated teacher and monthly progress reports. These plans will be developed by the teacher with parent input following the guidelines that are set in Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 392-550.  The WAC requires WSLP meetings each calendar month.

WSLP includes:

  • Descriptions of coursework, materials & curriculum.
  • Course goals & objectives tied to state standards.
  • Timelines & evaluation methods.

WSLP Compliance:

  • WSLP aligns with district & state standards and must be completed/approved prior to class attendance.
  • Parents must participate in monthly progress reviews with their student’s WSLP advisor by completing Monthly Progress Reports.
    • These are due by the 25th of each month. 
    • Parents have a few options to participate in progress reports:
      • Synchronous (live) meeting via phone, virtual, etc.
      • Email WSLP advisor (asynchronous)
    • Parents need to provide progress details for both classes at Emerson K-12 and outside of Emerson K-12.
  • Students must regularly attend and participate in class activities and assignments.

Failure to comply with any/all of the above requirements in a timely manner will result in students being withdrawn from Emerson K-12.  Once a student is withdrawn for lack of compliance, they may forfeit any ability to return/re-enroll.

High School Credit: In order to earn high school credit for coursework outside of Emerson K-12 classes:

  • The LWSD Request for Equivalency Credit Course of Study form must be completed as part of the student’s learning plan before the student begins the learning experience.
  • The Equivalency Course of Study must align with district standards and provide a viable assessment.  After completion, credit determination will be made by the principal and WSLP Advisor.
